Violence has a negative impact on adolescents and affects their quality of life. It causes stress and requires the victim's adaptive capacity, which can cause psychological and biological changes. Hormone cortisol levels have been used as stress biomarker in several studies. This paper aims to perform a systematic literature review of publications on cortisol and violence involving teenagers from 2000 to 2013. Descriptors "cortisol", "violence" and "adolescent" were used in both English and Portuguese in this review, which included bibliographic databases PubMed/Medline, Lilacs, BVS and SciELO...

The Absorb biovascular scaffold (BVS) is a bioresorbable, everolimus-eluting scaffold whose data on real-world patients with complex lesions are limited. Short-term follow-up from recent studies point to a higher rate of 30-day thrombosis than observed with drug-eluting stents. We aimed to understand the short-term safety and efficacy of BVS. Registro Absorb Italiano (RAI, ClinicalTrials.gov:NCT02298413) is an Italian, prospective, multicenter registry not funded, whose aim is to investigate BVS performance through a 5-year follow-up of all consecutive patients who have undergone successful implantation of ≥1 BVS in different clinical/lesion subsets...

Giant proteoliposomes are generally useful as artificial cell membranes in biochemical and biophysical studies, and various procedures for their preparation have been reported. We present here a novel preparation technique that involves the combination of i) cell-sized lipid vesicles (giant unilamellar vesicles, GUVs) that are generated using the droplet-transfer method, where lipid monolayer-coated water-in-oil microemulsion droplets interact with oil/water interfaces to form enclosed bilayer vesicles, and ii) budded viruses (BVs) of baculovirus (Autographa californica nucleopolyhedrovirus) that express recombinant transmembrane proteins on their envelopes...

Beneficial properties of bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVS) regarding to vasomotility restoration and no caging of the vessel make them attractive devices in chronic total occlusions (CTO) revascularization. However, more evidence is needed attending to their use in this specific setting. We aim to determine feasibility and safety of BVS use in CTO revascularization attending to struts coverage and apposition, as well as re-stenosis and stent thrombosis (ST) rates. 29 BVS were deployed in 9 CTO lesions revascularization (mean J-CTO score ≥3) with an acute procedural success rate of 100%...

Bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) stents have been proposed recently as an elegant technique for treatment of coronary artery disease. However, perspective that these "dissolvable" stents will replace conventional metallic stents in broad spectrum of clinical conditions and patient categories in the near future has been moderated by non-negligible incidence of stent thrombosis (ST). Mechanical factors, such as strut thickness and malapposition have been implicated in increased risk of BVS ST. Presently described is case of immediate partial BVS ST in a young male related to technical procedural problem, rather than mechanical problem...

Systematic randomized clinical outcome data in BVS has largely been reported in straightforward lesions, and BVS performance in more complex anatomy is not well defined In this study, OCT-analysis of imaging outcomes in lesions with variable degrees of calcification demonstrated similar acute performance between second-generation DES and BVS Open questions as to the unintended effect of OCT-guidance on the results of the study as well as the longer-term clinical outcomes in these lesions remain.

Tearing of the parasagittal bridging veins (BVs) is thought to be a source of extra-axial hemorrhage (EAH) associated with abusive traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) in children. However, the pediatric BV mechanical properties are unknown. We subjected porcine adult, porcine newborn, and human infant BVs to either a low rate pull to failure, a high rate pull to failure, or 30 s of cyclic loading followed by a pull to failure. An additional subset of human infant BVs was examined for viscoelastic recovery between two cycling episodes...

Genomic prediction for seedling and adult plant resistance to wheat rusts was compared to prediction using few markers as fixed effects in a least-squares approach and pedigree-based prediction. The unceasing plant-pathogen arms race and ephemeral nature of some rust resistance genes have been challenging for wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) breeding programs and farmers. Hence, it is important to devise strategies for effective evaluation and exploitation of quantitative rust resistance. One promising approach that could accelerate gain from selection for rust resistance is 'genomic selection' which utilizes dense genome-wide markers to estimate the breeding values (BVs) for quantitative traits...

To investigate the influence of P/As substitution on structures and electrical properties, e.g. the effect on material densities, two new solid P/As-doped solutions, Na2CoP1.60As0.40O7 (disodium cobalt diphosphorus arsenic heptaoxide) and Na2CoP1.07As0.93O7 (disodium cobalt phosphorus arsenic heptaoxide), with melilite-like structures have been synthesized by solid-state reactions. Their unit-cell parameters are in agreement with Vegard's law. The obtained structural models were investigated by the bond valence sum (BVS) and charge distribution (CHARDI) validation tools and, for the latter, the structures are described as being built on anion-centred polyhedra...

BACKGROUND: The bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) represents a novel technology designed to overcome the long-term limitations of metallic coronary stent implantation in percutaneous coronary intervention. In this context, primary percutaneous coronary intervention in ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) could be a preferred scenario for BVS implantation. Nevertheless, data on efficacy and safety are lacking in this specific subset of patients. METHODS: We conducted a systematic review to examine the safety and efficacy of BVS use in STEMI patients...

Bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVS) have become an attractive option in the percutaneous coronary intervention field due to the potential advantages associated with the complete resorption process that occurs within a few years. However, current-generation BVS have several limitations including thicker struts, reduced radial strength, and limited expansion capability when compared with drug-eluting stents (DES). As a result, complex coronary disease often contains BVS-inappropriate/unfavorable segments...
